FAQ – Individual and Specialty Position Camps
- What form must be filled out and signed for camp participation?
- Consent form with parent signature
- Current insurance information
- Physician’s statement (or physical performed within on year of camp)
- Do I need medical insurance to attend camp?
Campers must have medical insurance. The camp carries an EXCESS medical insurance policy to cover medical expenses for injuries/accidents which occur in the course of camp activities. Medical expenses, including any deductibles, which are declined for payment through the camper’s personal insurance and/or through the excess policy become the personal responsibility of the camper’s parents/guardians
- Can I send a physical instead of getting a doctor’s signature?
We only accept a physical that has been completed within one year of the last day of your camp’s camp session. Physicals can be sent by emailing a scanned version to volleyballcamp [at] gators.ufl.edu or by faxing it to 352-375-7807.
- May parents watch?
Parents are welcome and encouraged to watch their children. We request that you sit and watch in the designated sections for viewing in the facilities. If a facility does not have a designated section to watch, feel free to sit in any area that won’t be disruptive to camp activity.
- What is the difference between a resident and commuter camper?
Resident campers stay overnight at the camp dorm and receive all meals during camp. Commuter campers do not stay in the camp dorm. Commuters participate in all camp activities and meals except breakfast each day. Housing, breakfast and transportation to and from camp each day are the responsibility of each commuter camper.
- What should a camper bring to camp with them?
Resident Campers — towels, bedding (twin-size sheets, blanket, pillow or sleeping bag), alarm clock, toiletries, and pajamas.
Everyone — T-shirts, shorts, volleyball shoes, socks, knee pads, casual shoes, spending money for camp store.
